Millionaire playboy Bob Gordon poses as a reporter to woo beautiful Helen Brewster, daughter of Randall Brewster, publisher of The Daily Record. He manages to get himself hired at the newspaper to be close to Helen, but comes to realize someone is trying to sabotage The Record and drive it into bankruptcy. As Bob's investigation begins to close in on the truth, he finds himself targeted for death.
This Mayfair production stars a strikingly handsome 26 year old Buster Crabbe. Like his "rival", Johnny Weissmuller, Buster Crabbe was a gold medal champion Olympic swimmer whose physique led to the coveted title role in Tarzan the Fearless. Born Clarence Linden Crabbe (and often billed as Larry Crabbe), he rocketed to fame as Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers in the extremely popular Universal serials of the late 1930s, before settling in at PRC to do dozens of low-budget westerns as Billy the Kid and later as wandering cowboy Billy Carson in the 1940s.
Buster Crabbe plays one of his more offbeat roles in Mayfair's BADGE OF HONOR. Crabbe is cast as Bob Gordon, a spoiled society boy who finds himself in a small town, rife with political corruption. Hoping to bring the crooks to justice, Bob poses as a hotshot reporter, getting away with all sorts of outrages by explaining "Well, a newspaperman can do a little bit of everything." He manages to thwart the villains and win the heroine (Ruth Hall), all in a tight 62 minutes. Long believed lost, BADGE OF HONOR was rediscovered in South America in the 1980s: currently available prints are in English with Spanish subtitles.
